Could you take a look at vfs.git#Q28? There's still a massive reshuffling
going on, so there will be more branches; this one is the latest at the
moment.

I really hate the situation around sb_clone_mnt_opts/sb_set_mnt_opts and
I'm none too fond of the way fs_context_validate is done, so there will
be quite a bit of LSM tweaking. If we are doing that, let's do it
right...
